Presenters Declan and Joe both noticed Ashley Roberts' charms

Gazing longingly at Ashley Roberts as he watched her taking part in a trial, I’m A Celebrity host Declan Donnelly made no secret of his crush.

In fact, he even jokingly asked the former Pussycat Doll, 31, out on a date live on the show!

Dec, 37, pretended to call Ashley to say: ‘We’re having a big party on Saturday night… er, and I wondered if you’d like to celebrate the end of the series?

‘I just wondered if you’d like to come to the party with me?

‘Erm, I don’t do this all the time… I haven’t had a date for about eight months.’ Aww.

While Ashley‘s admitted she’s ‘100 per cent single’ and looking for love, Now can reveal Dec may have a bush tucker battle for her affections on his hands.

Step forward I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here Now! host Joe Swash.

The 30-year-old was surprisingly vocal about his thoughts when a viewer called in to the spin-off show to ask him how he felt about Dec making a move on Ashley.

Spitting out his words in apparent disgust, Joe answered: ‘You’re not the only one that’s noticed that. I’ll be having words with him later.’

He added: ‘They say all the best things come in small packages, so Dec must think his luck is in.’
